Back To Basics Holiday Gift Guide

Back To Basics Holiday Gift Guide |

I hate going shopping. Especially holiday shopping.

Thank you. dear internet.

This year, with the exception of a few handmade gifts, I have managed to do ALL of my Holiday shopping online! This makes shopping much more pleasant, and is one of my strategies for having a low stress holiday season.

Here is my holiday gift guide for Back to Basic living this year!

What would my kitchen be without cast iron pans?

I don’t know, but I know that these Lodge skillets are tried and true. Perfect for any stove top!

(See how to use and care for cast iron here!)

This Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven is on MY Christmas list this year!

Perfect for baking crusty bread, or simmering spaghetti sauce.

Want to preserve your garden goodies without taking up room in the freezer?

This Stainless Steel Dehydrator creates amazing dried fruit, veggies, herbs, jerky, and fruit leather.

Protect your hands from scrapes and blisters with these work gloves while you are shoveling, raking, or splitting wood.

They are available in multiple sizes, so they are good for guys or gals!

Any gardener, new or experienced always appreciates a new quality set of digging tools or a *seed gift card!

*I have no affiliation with this seed company, but I love all their heirloom and organic options!

Want to heat your house, save on your electric bill, AND get in shape?

Then you need one of these!!

Beeswax – An all purpose tool around a homestead.

From creating reuseable wax cloth wrap, making homemade body products, or making your own candles, beeswax is something I never am without.

Looking for a way to store all those real food leftovers?

This glass “tupperware” gets it done every time.

Want to REALLY cut down on costs and waste?

If you have a baby in the house, give these BumGenius 4.0 or Fuzzibunz a try!

It’s easy, I promise!

Mud Boots– A must for traipsing around the homestead!

(I like mine in black!)

    Love your practical gift ideas! The beeswax is a really neat addition!

    Thank you for linking up this week on the Art of Home-Making Mondays! 🙂

  2. What a great list! We actually gave our boys machetes one year. The grandparents about flipped out. But they are all Boy Scouts and know how and when to use them. Thanks so much for sharing at Simple Lives Thursday; hope to see you again this week.

    I am right there with you. I despise shopping- especially during holiday time. Almost all of my shopping is done online. This is a great gift guide! Thanks for sharing on Homestead Blog Hop!
